Illinois-based Broadwind Energy Inc. has announced $106 million in tower orders from an unidentified U.S. wind turbine manufacturer. The company will produce these towers in its Manitowoc, Wis., and Abilene, Texas, facilities.
‘I am pleased to report that this tower order brings us within reach of filling our planned 2014 tower capacity,’ says Peter C. Duprey, president and CEO of Broadwind Energy. ‘At the same time, we continue to work with customers to begin to build additional visibility into 2015.’
Broadwind says it has recorded $306 million in new tower orders since the beginning of this year.
